Developing Emotional Wisdom – through New Habits

Some proven habits to improve relationships:

Emotional wisdom, as we’ve come to understand it, reflects itself in the way people relate to others. In the case of ninety leaders, they used five key skills:

  • The ability to accept people as they are, not as you would like them to be.

  • The capacity to approach relationships and problems in terms of the present rather than the past
  • The ability to treat those who are close to you with the same courteous attention that you extend to strangers and casual acquaintances.
  • The ability to trust others, even if the risk seems great.
  • The ability to do without constant approval and recognition from others.
